It’s a new year, and we’ve finally ended up surviving another long and challenging year under social and travel restrictions. We won’t deny it, it was tough; but somehow we managed to sail through. And now, it’s time to look back at some of our favorite things from last year that we won’t mind having this year as well - and in case you’re wondering, we’re talking about the latest food trends!
The last few years have seen many food trends make an entry into the mainstream consumer market but we’re now looking forward to the future and eyeing the best and spiciest food trends to come.
On that note, we’re glad to let you know that we’ve rounded up some of the best food predictions for this decade, sourced directly from the experts at Whole Foods Market trends. If you’d like to know what’s going to be hot in the food arena in the 2020s and beyond, here's the blueprint!
Hold onto the sunflower seed
Sunflower seeds aren't just great for snacking on during a long soccer game; at least not anymore. They're filled with nutrition, fatty acids, protein, and so much more, which is why you'll end up finding them in food items like granola, nut butter, crackers, and trail mix, among others, this year.
The summer of 2021 was no less than a virgin cocktail's heyday; the craze behind those drinks was insane. But that doesn't mean non-alcoholic beverages are swept away from the tracks; in fact, those sippers are still going strong. A fun fact about these non-alcoholic drinks is that they're not your usual Shirley Temples, we're referring to more versatile and sophisticated drinks with different flavors and no fizz. Interesting!
Grains for the good
The issue of climate Arianism has been a cause for concern in recent years and by the looks of it, it's going to be an even bigger problem in the future. This is why smart brands are slowly opting for better produce that grows in healthy soils instead while also increasing the use of ethically grown whole grains in items like pasta, flours, cereals, and more.
Trends keep evolving and changing over time due to consumer demand, climatic conditions, and propaganda from marketing and news firms. When it comes to food, the main aim here must be to live a satisfied, healthy, and fruitful life. Adios!
